Tonight & Next Tuesday 3/9 5-8 pm: The Best Show On WFMU Pledge Drive
The WFMU Marathon 2010, their 2-week pledge drive for the free-form NJ/worldwide online radio station kicked off yesterday. As you know, their whole program schedule is solid music and talk listening, but tonight is of particular interest as it’s Tuesday and thus, The Best Show on WFMU from 5-8 pm. “Three hours of mirth, music and mayhem” hosted by Tom Scharpling. Ted Leo and Jon Wurster will be live in the studio.
Tom has outdone himself with this year’s premium for a $75 pledge–a DVD filled with a bunch of Losanjealous favorites:
It’s a full-length DVD called FANTASIA IN BEST SHOW MINOR, and it’s going to be amazing. Tom says that “It features stuff you’re never going to believe.” The DVD features PATTON OSWALT, TED LEO, PAUL F. TOMPKINS, ZACH GALIFIANAKIS, FUCKED UP, TIM AND ERIC, JOHN HODGMAN, AIMEE MANN, SCHARPLING AND WURSTER, YO LA TENGO, KURT VILE, MATT FRACTION, TODD BARRY, JASON WOLINER…and, says Tom, there are are “many more. There’s going to be puppets. Animation. Scharpling and Wurster stuff like you’ve never seen before. Travelogues from callers like Fredericks from New Port Richie, Julie from Cincinnati, AP Mike and more! Seriously – there are so many people working so hard on this thing. It’s gonna be legendary.” And when the marathon is over, this thing is COMPLETELY UNAVAILABLE.
Speaking of WFMU, if you’re headed to SXSW, the WFMU/Aquarius Records showcase will be headlined by our own Dengue Fever.
